This museum takes one through the history of Jerez with a very good audioguide. We were the only people in the museum on a wet November day. We were really enjoying ourselves when we were asked to leave. Astonishingly the museum close for two hours from 2pm to 4pm for lunch! What a shame as we never got back there.

The collection housed in recently modernised building is well worth a visit. The free English audio guide is finely pitched with just enough information and three video introductions, one to each section are also available in English.

This is a terrific collection of exhibits, dating from pre-history through to the modern era, showcasing the archaeology of the area surrounding Jerez. The city dates back to Phoenician times, and was successively ruled by the Romans, Vandals, Moors and Christian Spanish. Before these empires, humans inhabited the fertile area roughly 500,000 yrs ago. The museum displays this rich history... More

Newly renovated the displays are fresh though all in Spanish. For retired persons two Euros is a bargain as it includes an English audio guide. The videos are excellent. In a heritage building

Be warned, this is hard to find, even following the finger board signs. But it is well worth it. The staff have very little English and the exhibit labels are in Spanish (of course) but using the audio handset helps and everything is well presented. Do go there.

Much of what you see in the streets of Jerez is a "just" a few hundred years old. The museum gives you an insight in to the cultures that occupied the area before - Prehistoric, Roman, Visigoths, Moors. The museum is in a nice old palace and the exhibits are well laid out, even if few are spectacular.

I was surprised at how impressive the collection was, given the relatively small size and obscurity of this museum.
